As for Wednesday's schedule, EUR/USD traders' attention will be primarily focused on tonight's Fed meeting, where a 0.25% rate hike is widely expected. the Fed Barometer indicating a probability of more than 85% for this outcome.

It is therefore probably not the Fed’s decision that will influence the EUR/USD the most, but rather the indices than the bank central will provide regarding its next decisions. For now, the market very broadly expects a break in rate hikes for the next meeting.

If the FOMC meeting on Wednesday evening allows us to confirm this outlook, we should expect to see the price increase. see the dollar weaken, with a mechanically bullish impact on the EUR/USD price. If, on the contrary, the Fed is firm and leaves the door open to another rate hike in June, the Euro Dollar should suffer.
